Color Palette Challenge Review


It’s been two weeks now since we issued our premier Color Palette Challenge. We thought it might be fun to check in, see how you all are doing, and look at some of the gorgeous work that’s been submitted thus far. Do you need a reminder what colors the palette included? Simply look to the graphic! Our MFT classic Sweet Tooth, Pink Lemonade, Bubblegum, and Black Licorice combo seemed the most appropriate choice for this challenge’s maiden voyage. Ready to be inspired? Let’s see what our Design Team has been up to.


Karen kept it sweet and simple with the Precious Polaroids Die-namics and Picture This stamp set as the stars.


You’ll notice that Cindy and Karen had the same idea to use the Patterned Triangles Background stamp to create a tone-on-tone look; the end product is totally different though! The Celebrate Big and Sunny Day Doodles Love It stamp sets play a prominent role in Cindy’s window card.


Barbara decided some shimmer and shine were in order for her glitzy design. The subtle emboss pattern is courtesy of the Petal Circles Stencil while the sentiment is from our new Lots of Love Die-namics. Do you see how she cleverly created it by using just the “u” from one of the sans serif words?


Julie’s design is a great example of taking this challenge and flipping it on its head. While most of our Design Team, and most of you, chose pink as the dominant color, Julie went with bold black.  The Staggered Heart Border Die-namics brings in a hint of pink and that lovely stamped sentiment from the Love Story set stands gorgeously stark against the black mat.

We hope you’re inspired to tackle the challenge yourself! We love seeing projects as amazingly varied as all of you being linked up. Don’t forget that you have until noon on February 5 to share your own Color Palette Challenge projects. Just a reminder: one of the challenge participants will win a Gift Voucher to the MFT boutique valued at up to $20!
